This is new to me and I haven't seen anyone mention it yet.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=seattle,+wa&ie=UTF8&z=17&ll=47.604919,-122.331626&spn=0.003791,0.010858&om=1

They have some fake 3d buildings for a number of cities. It looks like they took a snap shot of the 3d buildings from Google Earth from above and put them on the map.
